With love to the west, from the north

FLOOD victims in the Western Division should expect a little more relief after a group of women, youths, schools, business houses and the Health Ministry in Labasa have offered clothing and food items.

Yesterday, the group handed over the supplies to Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica who thanked the organisers for such an inspiring campaign. "This campaign should not be the end of our donation instead let it be the beginning of our response to those affected by the floods," Lt-Col Moceica said.

"The devastating floods is the second in less than three months this year and I think it is a lesson for us here to always be prepared.

"I am really impressed with those dedicated mothers who worked tirelessly to make this appeal a success and also the donors for their generosity."

Labasa Women and Youth Flood Appeal organiser Arieta Moceica said the public offered help without hesitation. "We approached certain people for donations as we thought of what an affected mother would need in order to rebuild her family after devastating floods," Mrs Moceica said.

"Basic kitchenware items, clothes and food supplies were our target because we feel those mothers in the west would really need it most. This is a humanitarian act and we are delighted to donate in such an appealing way."

The flood relief supplies will be sent across to the west through courier company, CDP, for free of charge.
